Track Name: Seams
the thought of changing tracks, it's hard to relax
it's hard to see past the list of things I have to do
it's hard to tick that list when all my head is full of shit
it's not you
just throw me out with the bathwater

you see me, you see me
i'm falling apart at the seams

I thought that when the summer started everything would be fine
I thought I could confront these feeling when I finally had the time
but next week will be November
there is always mitigating evidence
I'm always sayings things are going to happen soon
I'm always sayings things are going to happen soon

now I sit in my room alone listening to some old songs
recalling all the places that I was when I heard them
they act just like the diary that I never kept
and always said that I was going to start soon
another thing I said was going to happen soon
Track Name: Stegosaurus
fold your arms and I'll fold mine
baby, I'm gonna make you smile
there's a stegosaurus
do you think he saw us?
eating tea and drinking wine
take me to your father
honey, I'm doing fine
running through forbidden forests
you live in prehistoric times

why is your blood so cold?

you go down to the river and say:
"everything is a glorious creation"
I'm not one be persuaded
I just want to know how your day is

raptors come, hour by hour
day by day
we don't let them creep in
they eat away at our vicious pleas
but somehow you still buckle at your knees

I'm not looking to be persuaded
I just want to know how your day is
Track Name: Polydactyl
drawing circles round memories
and now what's to become of me?
staring hard at the floorboards
and now unable to move
woe is me

the flick in your hair, the curve of your smile
the way you would look out the window at night
come and find me
i need you here beside me
come out and find the root of my mind
the screaming in silence
the weight of the world is upon me
dreaming of cold morning bedsheets

big footed boy you tumble around
you're clumsy in mind
sunk your teeth in my heart
I can't find you
oh how I'd love to hold you
big hearted friend you're killing me now
not saying a word you're still achingly kind
and i feel you
pushing your head into mind
Track Name: Tied
we build boxes, we build barriers
repeat the things that we've been told
words are cheap but can have physical actualisations in the world

where do we call home?
where are we supposed to go?

define colours, define sides
define values of sizes
although we can reject these things
I still feel like I'm tied
and I'm still scared of rocking boats
I'm scared of falling off the side
I'm scared that I don't have the strength
to swim against the tide

I'm scared of rocking boats
of falling of the side
I'm scared that I don't have the strength
to swim against the tide
I know that I could fill the Nou Camp
with all the privileges I have taken
so when I feel like I'm drowning
I know it's harder still for you
Track Name: Tides
memories slip us by, tides are rolling in
go swimming every day, the salt on your skin
waves wash away
don’t have a lot to say
you’re cold and fresh and free

I never wanted to grow up like you
never want to see the things you’ve seen
or feel the way you do
but now, all I want is to grow up like you
to see the things you’ve seen
to know why the sea’s so blue

jumping over roses in your garden
cut my knees and watched them bleed
felt so rewarding
knitted jumpers and pinafore dresses
taking photos and cleaning messes
first up to dance at all the parties

grabbed each other’s hands and started waltzing

all I wanna do is grow up like you
to dance around the living room
